Household Information


This pre-screening tool can be used to determine if you may be eligible to receive Food Stamp benefits. This pre-screening tool is not an application for Food Stamp benefits. An application for Food Stamp benefits may be made at your local office. Click HERE to find the office that serves your area.

An application for Food Stamp benefits may also be made by printing an application (at the end of the pre-screening process), completing it, and mailing it to your local office.
